Where'd you hear about Kardos being Rollins?

A buddy of mine knew Teddy Lang too. I think there's just the one Crown coupling, but I may be wrong.
Joe Ortolano (trombone) and Paul Ricci (clarinet) were the notables in that band as I recall.

Here's a squib about Sleepy Hall:
"John "Sleepy" Hall, was a banjo player who went to Yale, in 1924. He led the Yale Banjo Club, entertained with his band there and also toured. Rudy Vallée also was in his band at one time and recorded with Hall.  He had an exceptional custom-made banjo made for him by Bacon Banjo Co."
This is by Dailymotion.com contributor "kspm0220s" in connection with a vid of another Hall pseudo side.

I see you're from New York. I think about 9 in 10 of those interested in this depression-era stuff are New Yorkers. I was there 18 years myself...

Music is joy. Music shared is joy multiplied.
